comments on tax policy, senator chuck schumer talked about taxes. he spoke and answered questions at the national press club for about an hour. >> good morning. we're starting right on time today. i want to thank you for coming. i want to thank those who are joining us on c-span. on behalf of the national press club we're honored to have with us the senior senator from new york charles schumer. the senator will address the topic of tax reform. i just want to say i think this is an appropriate topic following a columbus day weekend. in club bus' time the prevailing weekend that there were dragons right over the horizon and most people thought the world was flat and anyone setting nauf a journey would go off the cliff. columbus thought he could find a new route. and today we're going to be exploring new tax reform and how to avoid a fiscal cliff. the senator will speak for about 20 to 25 minutes and then we will open up to questions. senator? >> ok. thank you, jamie for that very timely introduction. i want to thank the national press club. here's what i said yesterday at the new yo
knows taxes are due on april 15. we set up tax centers on the base three months prior and we take active duty military personnel off their regular duties and they go in and assist people with their taxes. you have people assisting with federal and state taxes. we provide nothing of the sort for voting registration. the move act was supposed to get offices set up on the basis. everybody could have gone in to check in with that voting assistance officer. that has never been in place while we were on active duty. we don't want a stack of voter registration ballots sitting on a counter somewhere. we want them to physically go in and say whether they want to register or not. this is the only way we can track it and find out if it is sure apathy which i find hard to believe. or is it just not having access? host: there is a project called a military voter protection project and they compared 2008 ballot requests and 2012 ballot requests and looking at key states, they thought there was a great difference as far bell requests. do you believe there is a significant difference? guest: this is hor
had to act for the middle class. we rescued general motors. we made sure that we cut taxes for the middle class. and in addition to that -- when that occurred, what did romney do? he said, no, let the detroit go bankrupt. we helped people refinance their homes. governor romney said, no, let foreclosures hit the bottom. it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. my friend, recently in a speech for washington said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in federal income tax. they are elderly people living on social security, veterans and people fighting in afghanistan right now who are, quote, not paying any tacks. i have had it up to hear with that notion of 47%. it's about time to take responsibility. instead of signing pledges to grover norquist, not to ask the wealthiest amongitous contribute to bring back the middle class, they should be signing a pledge to t

. "i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan." mitchell: "the nonpartisan tax policy center concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years." vo: why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class - or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here... how could we ever trust him here? silverado! the most dependable, longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

these things a lot tonight in my comments. i was the governor who drew top tax fraud. i had to cut $5 billion from the state budget, including my own salary. i'm the only governor in modern times who left the office with a smaller general fund budget and when i started. i know how to be fiscally responsible. my opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighting efforts led by the then-senior virginia senator. when someone who will fight and that is what i will do is your next to none state senator. >> if mr. allen, your opening statement. >> thank you. it's much better future than what we are having to endure these days. that is why i put forward a detailed plan. my bl
immediately rescued general motors. we made sure we cut taxes for the middle class and in addition to that, and when that occurred, what did romney do? romney said, no, let detroit go bankrupt. we helped people refinance their homes. governor romney said, no, let foreclosures hit the bottom. it shouldn't be surprising for a guy that says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. my friend recently said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are, my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more taxes than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. they are elderly who are living off of soecial security. they are veterans. i've had it up to here with this notion that 47% -- it's about time they take some responsibility here. and instead of signing pledging to grover nord quist not to ask the wealthiest to contribute to bring back the middle class, they should say to the middle class, we're going to level the playing field. we're going to give you a fair shot again. we are going to not repeat the mistakes we ma
construction workers back to work. why? it would have been an increase in taxes, not for most people, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. before i start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. this is actually about jobs and economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is
don't know. i never have enough money to do it. the middle class needs relief, tax relief. they needed now. >> the governor, if you like to respond to what he said about senator mccain's remarks. >> we can speak an agreement that, don wright, we need tax relief for americans so that -- darn right, we need tax relief for americans so that we can have jobs in america. barack had 94 opportunities to side on the people's side and reduce taxes and 94 times he voted to increase taxes or not support a tax reduction. 94 times. that is not what we need to create jobs and really bolster and heat up our economy. we do need the private sector to be able to keep more what we're in and produce. government will have to learn to be more efficient and live with less if that is what it takes to rein in the government growth that we have seen today. but we do need tax relief and barack obama even supported increasing taxes as late as last year for those families making only 40 two thousand dollars a year. that is a lot of middle-income average american families to increase taxes on them. i think that is
clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that's the choice in this election. and that's why i'm runni
policies on taxes and energy and our regulatory regime, at those are the things making it more expensive. makes it difficult for them to invest and create jobs. it is not just manufacturing. you see that across the entire business community. >> is that it? fix those policy issues, and whatever else is happening in america will be extended again? >> this is a bright spot. we should recognize that and embrace it. this is an opportunity for us to leave and emerge from the session. -- the recession we have been fighting our way through for five years. we can reestablish this economy as the leading economy in the world. there was a lot of attention paid to the numbers last week. the important point is 7.8% is good if it comes down. we have to look at the bigger number which is much higher. that is the more troubling number. i note some have been out for 27 -- almost 5 million americans have been out of work for 27 weeks. they have become much more difficult to import. -- employ. we have a mismatch. if we're going to look at numbers, the way to fix this is not focusing on employment. it is foc
, plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns, cayman islands in the bermudas. they took a baseball bat and beat romney's brains and in the six or seven swing states and that is why his numbers are upside down and that is why he has had so many problems until now. why they did that i don't know. i've been asking that question since june and i just think it was a huge miscalculation and the romney campaign family intervention that politico reported the other day basically tried to introduce him. this is what they should've done and the intervention that was reported was that mrs. romney and tad romney the oldest son of mitt romney went to his father and said you have to change things. is that the essence of of the? >> yeah and the family have wanted to take the charlie cook approach and alluded to the fact that their big bad from the beginning, the stuart steven sperry, the chief strategist very in the campaign was that all you had to be was not obama and that turned out to be wrong. you see it in the different channels they are doing now. no, you have to be yourself and n
/11, and today osama bin laden is dead. four years ago, i promise to cut taxes for middle-class families, and we have, by $3,600. of promised to cut taxes for small business owners, and we have 18 times. we got back every dime we used to rescue the banks, and we passed a law, to the end taxpayer-funded wall street bailouts permanently. we passed health care reform, also known as obamacare, because i do care. i do not want insurance companies, jerking you around anymore. i do not suit him -- do not want somebody without health care because they have a pre-existing condition. we repealed "don't ask, don't tell," as i promised him we would. today, he no outstanding soldier, marine, sailor, here man -- airman, none of them will be kicked out of the military because of who they are and who they love. when you think about ohio, and when governor romney said that we should let the auto industry go bankrupt -- we said, we are not going to take your advice. do not boo. vote. we reinvented a diving auto industry that supplies one in eight ohio jobs and has come roaring back to the top of the world. four y
is focused on giving herself a $7 million tax cut and hoping that trickles down to people who need help. my plan is focused on investing in the people of this state and funding our schools and building roads and bridges and we recognize the strength of our nation is the people who desperately want to good work. linda does have a plan under website but as we have recently learned, a good part of that is just listed word for word, paragraph by paragraph from white -- from right-wing republican sites in washington. it is not a plan for connecticut. it essentially parrots a bunch of talking points that have not worked for this country. >> why the lack of access as far as where the two of you are day in, day out. >> i don't think there is any comparison in terms of access. linda has refused to meet with editorial boards and i've been very willing to do so. i cannot count the number of press ability -- press availability as i have done. linda mcmahon does not want this campaign to be about issues. because of that is, she loses. whether its tax policy, support for education or women's health care,
on the table and they all signed a pledge for grover norquist. they will do anything for tax breaks for millionaires and oil companies and whole host of breaks for corporations. we will not solve this problem until tea party republicans can come to the table. guest: the democrats will only come to the table if they figure out someone to tax. the fact is, they have to budget. obama -- it's amazing to me that we have a president put a budget up here and got zero votes. we stepped up to the plate and put a solution to the problem. i would love to see the solutions that the democrat have. host: let me get in one more race. one of the top race that people are watching and that's utah fourth district. again from this political blog from the san francisco chronical. you say jim is at risk only democratic in congress to lose because of mitt romney's coat tails. guest: this is the most republican district in the country with the democrat representing it. his name and representation and job approval is rock solid. host: who is mia love? guest: fantastic candidate. small town mayor. doin
